Private Drum Teacher

I am very student focused and driven. I want to help my student realize their full potential with playing drums.
I can introduce my student to a basic understanding of music theory and hard rock/metal drumming is my main focus - however I am versed in other music genres as well, to give my student the most options to work with.
Relaxed, fun, and detail oriented are all words I would use to describe myself.
So, if you are looking for a drum teacher that can cover: rudiments, stick control, basic tempo/time understanding, metronome familiarity, tuning of a kit, drum maintenance, and much more, look no further!

About Nicholas

I understand that learning something new can be very daunting. I know that in particular, because I am still new to teaching! We can both learn together. I want to make it my goal, to help you be a better musician, performer, and most obviously: a better drummer. I care deeply about making sure my

First lesson, can tell we chose the right instructor. Excellent with my child. Knowledgeable.. my 11 year old is excited for more lessons!! :)
Cathy Gertz
Murray has a unique way of finding the way to teach an individual based on their strengths and weaknesses and how their brain thinks and learns. My 52 year old brain doesn't always get it but Murray always finds a way or technique for me to understand so that I can play and be the best that I can be whether I playing my drums or playing my cajon..

Not enough space to write how excited our students. Murray knows drums In and OUT. We are beyond blessed to have him instruct us!

Online Drum Teacher

I've been teaching contemporary drum set in Orange County for over a decade, and many of my students have gone on to not only play and read notated drum set music with ease, but have continued their studies at arts high-schools and music colleges, with several of them continuing on to the professional world. I use an award winning curriculum used at many music academies and conservatories, and have received accolades for my ability to retain many students for many years. Within the first few lessons, a new student will be able to understand the basics of rhythm and snare drum notation, play a plethora of relatable and cool sounding grooves, and build a foundation that will serve the student for a life time.

About Michael

Hi! My name is Michael and I am excited at the prospect of teaching you or your child... I absolutely love to teach, but not just because of my love for the drums or my life-long appreciation of music, but because of my enjoyment of people and the learning process itself. I feel that this is i

Theresa
When my son's school mandated that all students learn an instrument and I found out that he had been assigned DRUMS, I was at a loss. The lessons provided by the school were basic and I didn't feel that my son was getting the full benefit of all the drums had to offer. Luckily, we found Mike!

Mike set my son at ease instantly. He is very personable and has the gift of getting to know his students in a genuine manner. His friendly demeanor and willingness to use humor, without talking down to his students, sets him apart. Mike took the time to get to know Tom, including his musical interests, so that he could create high-interest lessons that motivated my son to practice and increased his love of music. Mike was able to explain clearly to my son what they were doing, how to do it properly, and why doing it correctly was worth the time invested. Not having had experience with drums, I had no idea how much technique is involved! Mike provided not only drum lessons, but life lessons as well.

As a parent, I have always appreciated Mike's timely communication. I have never had to wonder when my son's lessons would be, when payment was due, or what to do when I had a scheduling conflict. (By the way, Mike understands the chaos that sometimes goes along with being a working parent.)

To sum things up, Mike is a charismatic teacher who uses his expertise to instruct his students in how to become exemplary musicians and people. I recommend him without reservations.
Derek
I have taken lessons with Mike for over 7 years, and getting into drumming has been the best thing that has happened in my life. Mike is an excellent teacher, who truly loves to teach. You feel his joy, he is never condescending, and he is never more than a couple steps away from making a silly joke.
Drums have given me a hobby to keep improving as I get older. It has given me a passion for music, both performing, and listening. It has also allowed me to have experiences I never would been able to have without learning the drums, such as playing in the Huntington Beach 4th of July Parade, winning 1st place with my high school drumline, and making lifelong friends as part of my high school's music program.
I highly encourage to take lessons with Mike. He is the best.
John
Mike has been teaching our son Luis for almost 5 years now. He’s now ten and his play is amazing. Equally as importantly as his knowledge and high skill level, he is a patient and kind man who is great with kids. He built a strong relationship with my son and as a result, Luis loves playing drums. He has just the right balance of support and encouragement to get him to learn without feeling like he’s pressured or it’s homework. Passion make perfect!!! I highly recommend Mike as a teacher for students of any age. He Rocks in many ways!

Preparing for a Drum Audition: Cruise Ship Musician Gig

A few weeks ago we discussed how to prepare for a gig, but what if you're stuck on the very first step of getting through the audition? Check out this expert advice from DC-area drum teacher Andrew T., who has experience working as a musician for Princess Cruises:   As musicians, most of our gigs stem from informal auditions, which are typically very loose and relaxed. But what happens when you are asked to audition formally for a gig with a large corporation? From 2007 to 2009 I worked …
